Top Gyprock Installation & Repair related questions

Is plasterboard, drywall, and gyprock the same thing?

Yes. Gyprock is a household brand name (a bit like Bandaid or Hoover) that makes plasterboard and drywall products.

What should I do if I notice a crack or hole in my gyprock wall?

If you notice a crack or hole, you should contact a plasterboard specialist to inspect and fix it. Major cracks may need further investigation to rule out structural issues, but minor cracks and holes should be relatively easy to fix.

Should I purchase gyprock sheets before booking my installation?

It’s best to talk to your installer before you purchase any materials. That way, you can consult with them to make sure you buy the best products for your installation, and that you have the right amount of supplies to finish the job.

What qualifications or standards does my gyprock installer need to meet?

In some states, plasterboard installers are required to complete qualifications (like a Certificate III in Wall and Ceiling Lining) and hold a licence before they can do work (in NSW, this rule applies to projects valued at $5000+).

How long will my gyprock installation take?

Installing plasterboard walls, ceilings, and cornices throughout a standard 3-bedroom house will usually take at least a few days. However, installing just a few sheets or doing minor repairs could take as little as 3-4 hours. The total time will depend on the number of installers, the complexity of the job, doors/windows, wall size, and temperature/humidity for drying times.

How much does gyprock installation cost?

A gyprock installation costs anywhere from $120-$400 on average when you book your contractor through Airtasker. But this cost will vary depending on the size and complexity of the job and how long it’ll take to complete.

What does a gyprock installation or repair include?

Installing or repairing gyprock drywall generally involves assessing your space, measuring, cutting, applying adhesive, hanging, joining, and finishing. But there can be some variation in the method, depending on where your gyprock is being installed. Here are some of the most common drywall installation and repair jobs:


Gyprock wall installation

Installing gyprock walls starts with measuring the wall dimensions and cutting the plasterboard sheet with a knife. Your plasterboard installer will do one sheet at a time, laying sheets of gyprock on the wall studs and attaching with adhesive, then nailing into place. They’ll repeat the process until all gaps are filled with gyprock sheeting, before joining any edges (using angle beads on corners) and coating with Gyprock compounds. Once the compounds are dry, they’ll sand the surface for a smooth finish.


Gyprock ceiling installation

Installing gyprock ceilings involves a similar process to walls, with a few key differences. After measuring and cutting, your installer will then measure and mark locations for electrical wires and fixtures. They’ll cut these holes using a small saw before attaching the gyprock sheets, one at a time, to the ceiling joists with adhesive. Next they’ll screw the sheet into place before moving onto the next sheet, ensuring minimal gaps between sheets. Your installer will use a ladder and will most likely work with a second person to carefully place each sheet on the ceiling. After the ceiling is complete, they’ll join the edges with compounds (up to 3 layers may be required) before sanding smooth.


Gyprock cornice installation

Once walls and ceiling are in place, your handyman will install gyprock cornices to neatly mask the joins. They’ll measure each room along the top of the wall, from corner to corner, to determine the length of each cornice piece. They’ll mark each cornice and cut it to size, using a mitre box to get the right angles for each end. Next, they’ll line up each cornice, checking that the lengths and angles are correct, before applying adhesive and lightly securing them in place with nails. Your installer will apply cornice cement to the corner points where two cornice pieces join and any other gaps. They’ll use a damp sponge to clean off excess cement. After setting to dry for a couple of hours, your handyman will carefully remove the nails and fill holes with more cement, cleaning the area and sanding once dry.


Gyprock repair

Gyprock can wear down over time and is prone to scratches, dents, and holes from everyday use, whether you have active children or need to move around furniture. It’s important to get gyprock wall repairs sorted sooner rather than later so that problems don’t get worse over time. Your handyman will start the gyprock hole repair by cleaning the area and scraping out any excess plaster or debris that may have accumulated. The next step will depend on the size of the hole or issue. Holes bigger than 1cm that go all the way through will need a bridging material (like adhesive fibreglass mesh) installed. This will cover the hole, with a 2-3cm overhang. After applying the mesh, your handyman will apply a layer of fast-setting putty to cover the area. Once it’s dry, they’ll gently sand the area and repeat with a second layer of putty, before doing a final sanding.
